Expert Review by Maxabout

To many, the name Land Rover conveys a picture of robust jeep into our minds. To some extent, Land Rover Discovery 4 provides a combination of luxury, power and survivability. The first glance at this vehicle makes one send a silent tribute to power, courage and the spirit of adventure. This vehicle provides luxury while still keeping to the traditions of Land Rover. Land Rover Discovery 4 has an elegant body with five doors and sharp edged body that measure 4.8m in length, 2.17m in width and 1.83m in height. It has a six-speed automatic transmission system and ventilated disk brakes. Discovery 4 is amazingly comfortable for long drives at high speeds and it is custom made for a discoverer. Land Rover Discovery 4 is not a practical choice when used for smooth roads because of its fuel consumption. However for the off-road experience, Discovery 4 does not have a match in terms of strength and endurance.

Exterior

The Land Rover Discovery 4 seems too bold and rugged for the narrow and smooth city roads. To many, this vehicle may look like it is passing by the city heading to a more rugged terrain. For this reason, it attracts discoverers and it may not command a large consumer base. This SUV has unique rear and front bumpers that tell it apart from its predecessors. Its chrome plated front offers a vintage sense just like the flat hood imprinted with the Land Rover trademark towards the final curve. It has pocketed square shaped headlights that are equipped with adaptive Xenon with circular fog lights. For day time running, LED lights are fixed to the major front lamp unit. Discovery 4 has a slightly steeper windscreen as compared to other jeeps and SUVs. The color of the tailgate handle and the wheel arches is blended nicely so that it conforms to the rest of the body. The Exterior rear view mirrors are fixed with a memory function and a power fold system for efficiency.
